Those questions are: 1. Who is Allah? 2. How to reach Allah and how to be faithful to Him? 3. What is the way to paradise? 4. Have you done all the deeds necessary to enter paradise? 5. How then do we enter paradise by His grace and mercy only? 6. How can Allah be merciful and just at the same time? These questions were concluded by the statement "Jesus is God's Sacrifice" 1. In the name of Allah, the Most and Ever Merciful. 2. All Praise and Thanks be to Allah, the Lord of Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists). 3. The Most and Ever Merciful. 4. The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) 5. You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (For each and every thing). 6. Guide us to the Straight Way. 7. The Way of Those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger (i.e. those whose intentions are perverted: they Know the Truth, yet do not follow it), nor of those who went astray (i.e. those who have lost the (true) knowledge, so they wander in error and are not guided to the Truth). (Meaning of the chapter of the Opening of the Noble Qur'an)
  • 3 Due to the fact that chapter of the Opening answered most of these questions, I started my answer mentioning it. The Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said about it," It is the greatest chapter in the Qur'an." narrated by AL-Bukhary. Also, the Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said," I swear by the One who holds my life in His hand no chapter was revealed in the Torah, Gospel, Psalms, or Furquan that is equal to it."(i.e. chapter of the Opening). Question One: Who is Allah? Allah (Exalted be He) whose name is mentioned in the beginning of the chapter and then repeated again in the verse (thanks be to Allah) illustrates us His Proper name. This is the name of One, Who has the truthful existence and Who deserves to be worshipped and to hold names and titles of perfection cited in the Qur'an. Allah exclusively holds that name (Exalted be He). Hence, Allah assigned it for declaring His Oneness and yielding to Him. This privilege is also given for His Most beautiful names. These names are traits which man should follow according to His instinct. The Most beautiful names were listed in the hadith " Allah's Apostle said, "Allah has ninety-nine Names, one-hundred less one; and he who counts them all will enter Paradise." (To count something means to know it by heart.), narrated by Al-Bukhary) The names with which people are familiar are mentioned in a hadith narrated by El-Termedhy,"He is Allah, and there is no god but He, The Most Merciful, The Ever Merciful, The Sovereign, The All-Holy, The Source of Peace, The Source of Security, The Predominant, The All- Mighty, The Compeller, The Most Proud, The Creator, The Inventor out of Naught, The Bestower of Forms, The Oft-Forgiver, The Subjugator, The Great Bestower, The All-Sustainer, The Opener of Graces Doors, The Omniscient, The Withholder, The Enlarger, The Demoter, The Promoter, The Honorer, The Humiliator, The All-Hearer, The All-Seer, The Judge, The Just, The Most Courteous, The All-Aware, The Most Forbearer, The Tremendous, The All-Forgiver, The Appreciator, The Most Eminent, The Great, The All-Preserver, The All-Maintainer, The All-Reckoner, The Majestic, The Most-Generous, The Watchful, The Responsive, The All- Embracer, The All-Wise, The Affectionate, The Glorious, The Rescurrector, The Witness, The Truth, The Trustee, The Almighty, The Firm, The Protecting Guardian, The Praiseworthy, The All-Counter, The
  • 4 Originator, The Restorer, The Giver of Life, The Annihilator, The Eternal Alive, The Self-Subsistent, The All-Finder, The Glorious, The One, The Besought of All, The Most-Able, The Most-Powerful, The Advancer, The Delayer, The First of Everything, The Last of Everything, The Manifest, The Immanent, The Governor, The Most Exalted, The Benevolent, The Acceptor of Repentance, The Avenger, The Pardoner, The Most Compassionate, The Eternal Owner of Sovereignty, The Lord of Majesty and Honor, The Equitable, The Gatherer, The Rich Self Sufficient, The Enricher, The Preventer, The Harm-Inflector, The Beneficent, The Light, The Guide, The Great Innovator, The Everlasting, The Supreme Inheritor, The Sage, The Most-Patient." Some other scholars mentioned other names cited in the Quran and the sunna. Among such names are The Lord, The Surrounder, The Sufficient, The Near, The Helper, The Grace Giver, The Beautiful, The One, The God, The Everlasting, The Frank, The Bestower of Favors, The Owner of High Ranks. Most of the scholars agreed that the number of names exceeds ninety- nine. El-Nawawy mentioned that the meaning intended of this hadith is to tell that the one who knows these ninety-nine names off by heart shall enter Paradise. This does not mean that Allah does not have other names that are not mentioned. This fact is further reinforced by the hadith narrated by Ahmad," No one ever afflicted with grief or worry and supplicates to Allah saying, 'Oh, Allah, I am Your slave, son of Your slave, and Your bondmaid. My forelock (i.e. my whole affair) is in Your Hand; I am destined to witness what You will; just is what You destine me to. I beseech You with every name You hold, with which You named Yourself, which You inspired one of Your creatures, revealed in Your Book, or took exclusive knowledge of, to make the Great Qur'an the revival of my heart, light of my chest, relief of my sorrow, and a means to rid me of my worry' but gets responded to by Allah for what he called for compensating him with relief." These names can be divided into: 1- Names of Monotheism Sanctification and Uniqueness, such as: The One, The Eternal, The First and The Last, The Manifest and The Hidden. 2- Names of Divinity and Deity, such as: Lord, God, The Constraining
  • 5 and The Munificent, The Honourer and The Humiliator, The Giver of Life and The Giver of Death 3- Names of Sanctification and Greatness, such as: The Holy, The Peace Giver, The All-Knowing, The Independent, The Truth, The Judge, The Just, The Light, The Beauty. 4- Names of Greatness and Pride, such as: The Sovereign, The All- Mighty, The Avenger, The Eternal Owner of Sovereignty, The Lord of Majesty and Honor, The Compeller, The Predominant, The subjugator, The Tremendous, The Most-Eminent, The Great and The Majestic. 5- Names of Creation and Creativity, such as: The Creator, The Inventor, The Fashioner, The Incomparable. 6- Names of Generosity and Grace, such as: The Merciful, The Compassionate, The Oft-Forgiving, The Gracious, The Acceptor of Repentance, The Bestower, The Provider, The Most Forbearing, The Preserver, The Responder, The Benevolent, The Protector, The Guide. 7- Names of Perfection, such as: The All-Knowing, The All-Hearing, The All-Seeing, The Reckoner, The Living, The Self-Subsisting, The Light, The Inheritor, The All-Sage. These names embrace the best meanings and most perfect traits; they typically correspond to what Allah describes Himself:"His is the highest description (i.e. none has the right to be worshipped but He, and there is nothing comparable unto Him) in the heavens and in the earth. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise."(Meaning of the Noble Qur'an 30:27). The first two words of the chapter of the Opening denote both meanings :" All the praises and thanks be to Allah" Ibn Katheer cited that Allah (Exalted be He) started His Book with thanks and praise. Also, He started His creation with thanks and praise: "All praises and thanks be to Allah, Who (Alone) created the heavens and the earth, and originated the darkness and the light, yet those who disbelieve hold others as equal with their Lord.(Meaning of the Noble Qur'an 6:1) He also ended existence with thanks and praise: "And you will see the angels surrounding the Throne (of Allah) from all round, glorifying the praises of their Lord (Allah). And they (all the creatures) will be judged with truth, and it will be said. All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists)."(Meaning of the
  • 6 Noble Qur'an 39:75).Allah, furthermore, thanked himself in the worldly life and the last one:" And He is Allah; La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). His is all praise, in the first (i.e. in this world) and in the last (i.e. in the Hereafter). And for Him is the Decision, and to Him shall you (all) be returned." (Meaning of the Noble Qur'an 28:70).This is what the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) taught Muslims to supplicate in their prayers: "Oh, Allah, to You are thanks and praise that would fill the heavens, the earth, what is between them, and whatsoever You will."This is also the first supplication for the believers in Heavens:" Their way of request therein will be Subhanaka Allahumma (Glory to You, O Allah!) and Salam (peace, safe from each and every evil) will be their greetings therein (Paradise)! and the close of their request will be: Al-
